Be Creative and Wise While Harming None

On Facebook, Witches of Ontario, someone posted about their landlord not wanting them to practice Wicca/ Witchcraft in the home. The landlord was concerned about the spirits which might be attracted to the home. Yes, people do have rights and freedom of religion. Many people replied about that, some getting aggressive about it. However, there is truth to the landlord’s concerns.… Read the rest

BC Witch Writes a Guide for Solitary Witches

I found, on Amazon, a book for solitary Witches written by Rowan Morgana, a woman from Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. I have not ordered the book, it seems to be more about spells and recipes than I would like. But, overall it has very good reviews on Amazon.

Have you heard of a book for solitary Pagans, Wiccans, or Witches by someone from Ontario?

The Fight to be the Perfect Witch

You are never going to be the perfect Witch, or anything else really. Stop comparing yourself to others. You, or they, can never be perfect. It is a losing battle which leaves people discouraged, burnt out and stressed.

Be the best Witch (or anything else you want to be or do) you can. I know that’s old and worn out advice.… Read the rest

Have you Heard of the Witch’s Heart?

I found these posted to eBay. I’d never heard about a witch’s heart, in this way. A lot of things were “to ward off evil spirits”. But, I wonder, how was this a witch’s heart in particular. What made it something other than a decorated hear? Like a claddagh (the heart with a hand holding it on each side and a crown on top) there must be a story to this witch’s heart too.… Read the rest

Witches from Ida Rentoul Outhwaite

Ida Rentoul Outhwaite was an Australia illustrator in the early 1900’s.

I have seen her work many times without knowing who she was. This week I posted an image on Twitter and WebGrrl sent me a link with her name, history and other illustrations she had done. I found another link with more about her and more of her work.… Read the rest

Just to Listen and Not Expect More

Having any kind of faith, belief or religion is about labelling yourself and having others label you. Even an atheist, someone who does not believe in any gods (or any formal religion) is labelled, an atheist. A religious based name and word. Funny how so many things are ironic like that.

My label, as best as I can pull together the words, is an atheist Green Witch.… Read the rest
